Experience

Software Developer

BlackBerry

Jul 2007 - Jun 2012

In my 5 years as a developer at BlackBerry I had the fortunate opportunity to work on a variety of projects: engineering solutions for mobile & web based applications that serve over 50 million subscribers worldwide, developing & testing core-API services in enterprise-level applications, and developing homegrown tools in support of test-automation, product localization, and database procedure interactions, all built using a wide variety of tools and programming languages including Java, Groovy, Javascript, jQuery, Spring Framework, HTML, CSS, Perl, Restful Web Services, Jenkins, TeamCity, Robot Framework, Selenium, SOAP, WML, and XML. Over the years my subject matter expertise focused on the development of core web services for our desktop web, mobile web, and native device applications, and the implementation and management of complex front-end functionality while supporting multiple browsers using jQuery, native JavaScript, HTML, and JSPs. My exposure to these challenges led me to eventually develop a specialization in working throughout the stack to build highly scalable web applications.
